Easily attach a variety of accessories to the front of your GMC Sierra with this fully welded, corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver. Perfect for winches, spare tire carriers and more.
Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.
Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.
In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

The hitch arrived on time and in good shape. The install wasn't quite as easy as anticipated. The biggest issue was that the front air dam on my 2011 Chevy Silverado 3500 is pretty low and it limited my ability to move around under the truck. I could have put it up on blocks, but I decided to just deal with the limited space. The cutout of the front fascia was pretty straight forward. Once that was done, I used a floor jack to get the hitch up in place. It was difficult to line up the front holes on the hitch with those in the frame. After much up/down & back/forth I was able to get the original bolts through. The back holes were much easier at that point. One thing that would have been nice to include would have been a wire pig tail to pull the back bolts through the cutout in the frame. Fortunately I had one left over from another project and it made getting the back bolts through a breeze. Before torqueing the nuts down I noticed the hitch did not line up perpendicularly. It is slightly tilted to the rear. I took out as much of the tilt as possible before torqueing the nuts down. I don’t think the tilt will be an issue as I’m going to use the hitch to mount a Yakima Dry Dock for my kayaks, but Draw-tite should take another look at their specs and see if any changes are in order. The attached picture gives you a veiw of the tilt. I used the Curt license plate holder for my front plate since the fascia cutout was in the location where the plate used to reside. 67098
Delivered by UPS in flawless condition. FedEx has damaged everything I've order thus far and was glad to see a UPS truck for a change. Packaged by etrailer logo outside to withstand practically anything. I removed this very heavy front end hitch with a thick smooth paint job, hardware accounted for and attachment boxed separately so as not to strike the product. As for the quality of this hitch, exceptional! Built tough for a GMC Sierra 2500HD, 4x4 that will see strong duty up to 9000 lbs of wenching as designed. Impressive item, excellent construction, outstanding packaging is proof that etrailer value their customers. Thanks. 29518
Purchased this item for my 2011 2500 HD Silverado. With hitch receiver in place 2" receiver is tilted back out of level tremendously. 2" receiver doesn't protrude past bumper fascia enough to even get pin through bar. Hole is behind plastic fascia. Already had a brush guard in place and had to widen front mount by 1/2" to accommodate existing brackets. Don't know how this product is advertised to fit my model truck its unleveled and short after installation. 108521
